Join our Patrons’ Club
In August 2023, we relaunched our Patrons‘ Club. For an extra payment every year, Patrons will gain access to exclusive events, a free ticket for the Winter Dinner, and full Patrons also get an entry into the 200 Club. Sir Geoffrey Cox our MP, is happy to host a gathering once a year as well, either in Devon or London.
This is for our regular staunch supporters, a delightful group of people who attend almost every Association dinner, enjoy talking about politics in like-minded company, and are happy to support our local elections, and of course Sir Geoffrey, with the general election.
One main focus of our Patrons’ Club is to help support young Conservatives. Our under 26s are vital to the future, and under the umbrella of Debbie Flint's True Blue Patrons Supper Club, many wider general Association events will have an opportunity for guests to add an extra donation which helps to subsidise the attendance of young Conservatives e.g. at prestigious events. More here.
Locally, generous Patrons will also sponsor gatherings, bringing together young Conservatives with our long-term supporters, helping to nurture their interest and understand what it means to be a Conservative member locally.
Debbie would like to invite you to join if you are a member of our Association, by contacting her on firstname.lastname@example.org.

From Debbie Flint, your Deputy Chair Fundraising and Membership:
“Best wishes and thank you again for being amazing and helping us make strides forward in these difficult times, to building a Conservative community and support Sir Geoffrey at the next general election. You are a really valued part of our Association, and for me personally it’s always a pleasure creating events for you guys. It’s one of the reasons I am continuing in this role for the time being :-).
Thank you again for looking forward to hearing from you when you have set up the standing order or one off payment :-)
When it’s set up, please email me, and please make sure I have your mobile number. I’d like to join you to a Patrons’ info-only WhatsApp group, please say if you don’t want to be joined to it.
Contributions & Suggestions
Request – if you have any contributions you would like to make, perhaps you know an outstanding Devon-based speaker we could invite along to a meeting, or other suggestions about events, please let Debbie know.
